The Artist:An Italian composer most famous for his Neapolitan song Funiculi, Funicula, about the Vesuvius Funicular.
"Funiculì, Funiculà" is a famous Neapolitan song written in 1880, with lyrics by journalist Peppino Turco set to music by composer Luigi Denza. It was composed to commemorate the opening of the first funicular cable car on Mount Vesuvius.
